The robot learned to box and play the piano just by watching people

Researchers from Stanford University (USA) created the HumanPlus robot. It learned how to play the piano, box, and more by observing people's actions, according to engineers.

HumanPlus needs 40 hours of human movement data to learn a task and then repeat it step by step,  the developers said. At most, it can follow people with its camera and then replay the action in real time.

The humanoid robot was created on the basis of the Unitree H1 robot, and it received the manipulator from Inspire-Robots. However, to build a working model, engineers spent approximately $107,945.

Anthropomorphic robots are all the rage right now. Recently, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that over 1,000 Optimus humanoid robots will be working in his company's factories next year.
